This was, hands down, one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been a part of! After their gorgeous rehearsal dinner and welcome party, it was finally wedding day! All three events also include photos that I feel the proudest of, truly this was a labor of love by all the vendors involved and I was so honored to be a part of it! Lauren and John are 100% perfect for each other which I knew from the moment I met them at their Dallas, Texas ranch engagement session. Lauren was also the most composed bride I think I am have ever had, and these two really truly enjoyed their day from start to finish and it showed in their images. As usual I have picked way too many to share, but this Northport Point wedding was just too full of amazing moments. Enjoy scrolling through!

Yesterday I shared Lauren and John's rehearsal dinner and today I am back sharing their welcome dinner! Welcome parties and dinners have gained popularity this year and it is such a treat to be able to welcome out of town guests (most of Lauren and John's had flown in for their nuptials!) to experience the place a couple loves so much. In Michigan, we believe summertime is unrivaled almost anywhere else and this couple's guests got a taste of it with s'mores, a perfect sunset, live music, a roasting pig, gelato cart, signature cocktails, lawn games and more. As if that wasn't perfect enough, every little detail was beyond beautiful... here are some favorites! And stay tuned because I will be sharing their stunning wedding soon!
I am so excited to be sharing part one of three of the most beautiful wedding weekend of Lauren and John. You may remember them from their stunning Texas engagement shoot last fall that was drool worthy in its own right. Their nuptials took us to northern Michigan where they kicked off the weekend with a rehearsal dinner hosted by the groom's mother at Cherry Basket Farms just outside of Northport. I wish that everyone could enjoy evenings like this-- celebrating under the open sky eating the most delicious food and drinking the best Michigan wines. This soirée took us well into the night and as the sun dropped, the glasses raised in toasts and cheers to the soon to be husband and wife. We hope you enjoy some our very favorites, and stay tuned for the next two installations, the welcome dinner and the wedding!
